Like most universities, Carleton University had, after a decade of the web, a group of villages instead of a city representing it on the internet. And so with a small team Computing and Communication Services at the university used WordPress to rebuild all 200 of its front-facing informational sites in a little under 2 years. Andrew Riddles explains the background to this project, outlines how the team achieved buy-in from the Carleton community and management, and describes how the new system was implemented.
